Boutique Architectural Studio located in New York City. We specialize in unique residential, commercial projects.
We are excited to announce that Laith Sayigh and Koray Duman have joined forces to form a new architectural and multi disciplinary design office in New York City; Sayigh+Duman.
Sayigh+Duman is a contemporary architecture, multi disciplinary and cultural analysis office first developed by Koray Duman in 2004 under Studio Ur+Nod. In 2009, Laith Sayigh joined the office as a partner and the office took its current name Sayigh+Duman.
Studio Urnod is a design environment that is interested in achieving imaginative, intelligent, and creative solutions to its projects. Using the latest computer aided design techniques, graphic design and model building we aim to achieve solutions for each of our clients that are creative, build able and importantly delivered on time and on budget.
Fundamental to the office is an ability to communicate with and understand the unique requirements of every client and to create a solution that not only achieves a creative solution but one that also goes further in producing an outstanding result.
Also fundamental to the office is pursuit of sustainable design, in so the office is LEED certified and will be committed to bringing as many of its projects into LEED Certification. Making a change to the environment is paramount to us in the built environment today.
We are excited to continue contributing to the design environment that we live in today.
